|Condition Monitoring and Maintenance Planning of Turbines - Francis, Pelton and Kaplan Turbines |
Each turbine ’ s component types are described in separate chapters, and each chapter has been divided into the following sections:
Description of Components
This section gives a short description on the units ’ configuration and manner of operation.
Types of Damages
Provides a general description of relevant damage mechanisms that makes for the most common reasons for wear and tear. Types of damages most relevant for these turbine types are:
This section gives a short summary of the most relevant methods used for surveillance and diagnosis of the types of damages described in the section Damage mechanisms .
Relevant measurement methods for these turbines are:
It is important to have a strategy for which measurements need to be carried out, and how often this should happen. The outcome of this strategy is a recommended measurement programme for monitoring and recording of the operating condition of the unit.
In addition the courses contain further information on the following:
- Principles for measurement of leakage water flow rate
- Pitot measurement
- Ultrasound measurement
- Losses in the turbine:-
- Flow diagrams with interpretation criteria:-
- Inspection forms:-
